Sterlite Tech has set up a Specialty Products Experience Lab (SPEL) in Silvassa, India, to focus on connectivity architecture solutions for global telcos, ISPs, cloud companies and data centres.
The company has already set up Centre of Excellence for photonics and glass science research, Centre for Smarter Networks for innovation on future network applications such as Software Defined Networks (SDN) and converged networks, and two software delivery centres.
The new lab in Silvassa enables real-life experience of network design inventions for small cells, Internet of Things (IoT), CCTV surveillance and related applications, Sterlite Tech said in a statement.
“All emerging applications, including Cloud data centres, IoT, small cells, Wi-Fi and point of sale connectivity are demanding enhanced connectivity solutions. The new lab will address these market needs,” Ankit Agarwal, CEO – Telecom Products, Sterlite Tech, said.
Sterlite Tech, which focuses on spending on innovation, will perform critical tests to confirm cable quality and performance compliance.
SPEL enables original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to perform proof of concept tests of the physical layer network infrastructure for application requirements.
OEMs can conduct four connector channel testing, Power over Ethernet (PoE) testing and develop HDBaseT-compliant designs.
